In the seventies of the last century, “Riad” began to enter the world of acting in addition to the performance dance, where she was nominated for the movie “The Dawn Visitor”, then the movie A Girl named Mahmoud and then the return of the prodigal son. It turned to dramas, where the series Al-Mal and Al-Banoon was a great starting point for her. Then came the series “The Mountain, The Legend, Case of Love, Temporary Name, Al Furiji, The Godfather”.
Her nomination for the film “Dreams of Hind and Camelia” in 1988 was the defining point during her career, as she placed her in the ranks of famous stars, in which she stood in front of the artist Najla Fathy and the late artist Ahmed Zaki, and then followed directly by the movie Ambar of Death and then Shabab Ali Kaf Afrit.
Then Aida Riaz participated in a number of important artworks that were considered among the most important classics, including the movie Blood Ghazal, Kit Kat, the innocent and the executioner, and Naama Bay.
